Cheers from Australia, sweet friends!
Welcome to our little space on the web, we are so happy to have you here! I want to start off by thanking sweet Annie from Zevyjoy for inviting me to participate in this lovely Easter blog hop. If you know Annie you already know just how wonderful she is and how amazing her blog is as well! If this is your first time meeting, I promise you, you will be so smitten with her blog and everything she creates, so make sure to stop on over there and say hello!
Easter will be a bit different for us this year since we will be returning from Australia on Easter evening. We will celebrate some here and then again at home which isn’t so bad considering how much we love the holiday!
Easter is such a wonderful time of year, a time to celebrate our Savior, reflect, rejoice, and refresh. It is also a time filled with so many beautiful memories of colorful eggs, bunnies, baskets of chocolate goodies and exciting egg hunts.
One of my favorite childhood memories around Easter was going over to my grandparents house in Texas. An annual tradition there was to craft pretty, colorful, sequin and velvet eggs with family that hung from the ceiling on dainty, winding ribbon to decorate their house with. Crafting with the ones I loved has always been a favorite memory of mine and it is definitely something that I love doing with my daughters today.
So now that I described that wonderful, luxurious, Easter craft I want to share with you the craft we created for this blog hop. It is completely opposite in the fact that it is so simple and very carefree! Haha! This craft literally took us ten minutes to make but the girls’ had so much fun creating them. On that note, let me introduce you to our Easter fairytale mushrooms! 🙂
Since we have been in Australia these past few weeks we have been super busy, so I knew we needed something simple and accessible as far as ingredients for the craft went. All this took were some plastic eggs, gathered sticks from the yard, borrowed nail polish from auntie and some tape. Wahla, easy peasy!
*Note, if we would have been at home I would have used hot glue instead of tape. 😉
Simply separate the Easter eggs, paint some spots on each half with your nail polish brush and let dry. Once dry, grab some tape or glue and adhere your stick aka stem to the inside of the egg aka fairy mushroom cap. And presto, you have your very own fairy mushrooms! 😉 These fairy mushrooms make adorable photo props, egg hunt decor or can be used in a fairy garden outdoors for play. Just another way to add some whimsy to your holiday, and you know how we adore whimsy over here!
The girls’ precious necklaces were handmade for them by Hooray Everyday. They were the perfect accessory to their darling Easter outfits. The dress, shoe, necklace combo was almost too cute to handle! And they would make such adorable basket stuffers, too!
Speaking of Easter basket stuffers, these darling hand crafted stuffed bunnies from Cuddle and Kind stole my heart when they arrived! I CANNOT wait to see the girls’ faces when they see them Easter Sunday! Aren’t they the sweetest?!
I hope you all have the best Easter ever, and that you enjoy some down time making memories, be it a craft or a conversation, with the ones you love most.
